Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin May 2021 Handmade Card Kit - Quick & Easy Baseball Card Alternative Idea

Welcome to Paper Pumpkin Week here at Creative Chelsey. For the next couple days, I will share a new alternative idea using the May 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Batter Up. The card I am sharing with you today was inspired by the pinstripe uniforms baseball players sometimes wear. I love how combining the two different stripes together add extra interest to the card. And the fun star add that little extra touch to help Grandpa really feel special.

I love creating alternative cards with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to come back for more videos as I continue to create with this month’s kit. I would love to see your finished creations that are inspired by this tutorial! You can tag me in any social media post using @creativechelsey | #creativechelsey or email me at

1- Remove the front from the back of the Pinstripe Cardbase at 4 ¼”. Trim the back piece to 4” x 5 ¼” and add it to the inside of the cardbase.

2- On the front piece cut 2 strips at 1 3/8” x 4”. Add them to the 4” Night of Navy piece about ¼” from the center on both sides. (So there will be a ½” gap in the middle)

3- Cut the flap off of one envelope and trim down to ¾” x 4”. Add this over the gap made by the two pinstripe pieces. Adhere this 4” Night of Navy piece to the front of the cardbase (you can use dimensionals for more depth if you want)

4- Add the Baseball Card with dimensionals at an angle to the left side of the card. Add the Real Red star (use a punch, dies, or hand draw & cut out) off the Baseball Card on the top right.

5- Stamp your choice of Greeting on the small rectangle piece in Night of Navy. Tie a small bow with 8” of twine. Add behind the greeting and adhere with a dimensional over the star.

6- Add three red enamel dots.

All Done!
